Singing in the Elevator
So, after wheeling siz servers across the street and spending a good couple hours in the Data Centre, the iPod (which has earned a reformatting for other stunts) decides that just when I am getting into the elevator is a good time to spin up the Evanesence ballad. So, down the elevator, across the street, into the lobby, up the elevator, and back into the NOC I'm singing softly (and no doubt badly), whilst dragging the emptied cart:

"My Immortal"

I'm so tired of being here
Suppressed by all my childish fears
And if you have to leave
I wish that you would just leave
'Cause your presence still lingers here
And it won't leave me alone

These wounds won't seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase

When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream I'd fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have
All of me

You used to captivate me
By your resonating light
Now I'm bound by the life you left behind
Your face it haunts
My once pleasant dreams
Your voice it chased away
All the sanity in me

These wounds won't seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase


I've tried so hard to tell myself that you're gone
But though you're still with me
I've been alone all along


And back at the desk (as it were) iTunes on the Powerbook is pouring it on: Belly "Someone to Die For", Liz Phair "Polyester Bride" (a track which haunted me for months after I got that album, and often since) .. and now back into the Emma-vesence for Evanesence - 03. everybody's fool. *sigh*

And the cute pink memey quiz thing thinks I'm .. furniture. My LJ BattleCard thingy has speed 0, so keeps getting beaten, stuck at Level 3 ...

What a thing to wake up to. Sorry iTunes was being a bastard. Lunch today maybe? Give me a call when you wake up. *hug* I miss you.
